Mr. John emphasised on the need for Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) at IIE Haridwar CETP explaining how industries can strive to achieve the same in keeping with the CPCB guidelines. He also highlighted the possible ways of implementing ZLD with options of using of reclaimed water, financial mechanism, sharing of accountability among various stakeholders for implementing ZLD at SIIDCUL Haridwar and various other factors related to ZLD. Mr. John further elaborated on 3 possible grades (Grade-I, II, & III) of water quality available for ZLD for reuse in industries. 

After detailed discussions, a consensus was arrived at among all stakeholders that Grade-I quality of reclaimed water may be taken in the first phase for 25-30 industry on a pilot basis (ready to take the treated water for reuse in industries).
